Most people don’t realize that the title of the speech wasn’t in the original prepared text. It wasn’t until the famed Gospel singer Mahalia Jackson yelled out, “Tell ’em about the dream, Martin!” that the Reverend went off script and adlibbed much of the rest of the speech.
Interesting first-time individual win for Aniston. She was up against a strong field in Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Colman for The Crown, Jodie Comer in Killing Eve, and Elisabeth Moss in The Handmaid’s Tale.
Cook’s not wrong but trying to overhaul the entire global system may be a task worth of Sisyphus.
Twitter user @uzbadyubi has never seen the classic film, Princess Bride. So they took to Twitter to livestream their reaction to it and it is comedy gold.
Apple is attending the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour and has announced several new programs.
This is great news. I’m really looking forward to this movie.
This is a piece from late last year but it has resurfaced in light of recent events. It’s also by a man I like, admire, and greatly respect (even if I disagree with him on occasion) and a man who knows more about the topic than any of us ever will – General Michael Hayden, former director of both the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency.
This is pretty cool. My son and I just spent the last 30 minutes taking pictures of him with various animals (panda, lion, leopard) in our living room. I had no idea how big a wolf was.
I love this guy’s channel and his wonderful explanations of things.
Engadget: As promised, Microsoft is officially releasing its Chromium-based Edge browser today, which is powered by the same engine that’s behind Google Chrome. Windows and Mac users can download and install the update manually, and automatic updates will start rolling … Continued
This is priceless but I have no sympathy for the reporter. A simple Google search would have told her all about “drop bears”.
Good. Now stop asking about it. It’s a spectacularly bad idea for exactly the reasons mentioned in the story. If you need edits, use a full-featured Twitter client like Twitterrific or Tweetbot which allow you to “delete and edit” a tweet.
I and others been saying this for years. It should have been the natural extension of Jobs’ vision for the home he put forward long ago at a Macworld Expo keynote. I think it’s a huge blind spot the company is bizarrely ignoring. Something as “simple” as the Apple TV combined with a HomePod that works as a TV soundbar has been talked about and lusted over. Why won’t/hasn’t Apple developed this idea further? I agree with Snell when he says, “The elimination of AirPort wasn’t a mistake. The real mistake was not replacing it with a next-generation product that could be the hub of a home network.”
What a great story and an amazing dog.
I’m sure no Loop readers would fall for any of these but this is a great article to pass along to those you know who may not be as technically literate.
I read about this years ago and it pissed me off. I was an avid player of this silly game during this time (although I haven’t set foot in a MacDonald’s in decades) and I knew I had no chance of winning. Little did we know, none of us did.
Regardless of CEO Cook’s seemingly (even if out of necessity) chummy relationship with President Trump, Apple’s response to this will likely be the same as it was in a similar case in 2016 – Apple will tell the government to go pound sand.
As always, I have little to no sympathy for companies trying to make a living off selling my data without my expressed permission.
I’ve never wanted a 3D printer more than after watching this video.
I saw this on Twitter and it blew my mind.
No argument here. Crudup was a scene-stealing delight.
I’M NOT CRYING! YOU’RE CRYING!
This happens on a fairly regular basis in Hollywood but will nonetheless be a blow to Apple. It is the second film to be pulled from Apple’s lineup. The Banker was pulled late last year.
If you have the battery case for any of these three affected phones, contact Apple about getting a replacement.
What a great trip down memory lane. I’ve studiously avoided re-watching Blue Thunder because I don’t want my childhood memories of enjoying it immensely be ruined by discovering, as an adult, that it was actually a bad movie.
This was a lot more interesting than I expected it to be.
I was in the audience that day 13 years ago. While we “knew” it was going to be called the iPhone, we had no idea what it would actually look like. To say it blew our minds would be an understatement.
This is one of those stories you absolutely can’t believe is true until you see it yourself and even when you do, you think, “How the hell did that make it this far!?”
If you’re “of a certain age,” (read: old), this will be comedy gold for you. Personally, I’d rather watch this series than the actual Mandalorian which I found boring and tedious.
I predict this will flame out inside two years.
